Matt Lewis - Silverback Tarzan: Fitness, Fasting & Facing Your Fears


Chief Flying Instructor & Owner at Airsports Sussex

“We need to start making real choices. Whether this is to do with food, your car, your house, use of time, career goals or money goals and try instead to choose things that really lead to contentment.”

In today’s world permeated by a culture of instant gratification, a daily diet of fast food, doom scrolling and one upmanship seems to be the order of the day, but at what cost? From the tantalisingly convenient in our busy schedules, to keeping up with Joneses, is it any wonder that our mental health is suffering.

Our diets, for example, are characterised by an abundance of processed ingredients, high levels of sugar, unhealthy fats, and artificial additives, wreaking havoc on our bodies in ways we may not fully comprehend.

Supermarkets perpetuate a cycle of dependency and instant reward that undermines our holistic well-being. By prioritising convenience over quality and succumbing to the marketing tactics of multinational corporations, we unwittingly sacrifice our long-term health for the sake of momentary satisfaction.

It’s a vicious cycle, and something today’s guest knows only too well – a man who has made it his life’s goal to educate the world on the value and importance of clean living.

Matt Lewis, better known as ‘Silverback Tarzan’ to his army of committed social media followers, is the calisthenics athlete, hang gliding instructor and social media icon, who for many has become a beacon of inspiration and wisdom.

Matt advocates for a lifestyle rooted in fitness, nutrition, and a profound connection with the natural world as a means to overcome the pitfalls of modernity, while demonstrating how anyone, no matter their age, can create a life of fulfilment, joy and most significantly health.

Matt’s journey is quite remarkable, and a reminder to all that the most important things in life are often the easiest to acquire. His inspirational videos espouse simplicity, integrity and harmony, embracing failure and challenging our fears.

Matt advocates a diet rich in whole, unprocessed foods, that not only nourish our bodies but also our souls. Through fresh fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats, we can fortify our bodies with the nutrients they need to thrive. For Matt, that includes workout routines that would put those half his age to shame.

For anyone acquainted with his online presence, you’ll be only too aware of Matt’s relentless dedication to athleticism, where calisthenics isn’t just about physical prowess; it’s a metaphor for life itself. With unwavering dedication and a trusty weight vest by his side, he’s honed his skills over years of practice, demonstrating the power of consistency and discipline.

While Matt encourages his followers to break free from the shackles of fast food marketing and embrace the nourishing power of real, wholesome foods, his mission goes beyond mere physical health; Matt believes in the transformative power of nature and spirituality, urging us all to reconnect not only with the planet but with one another.

“I am a lover of learning and life… exploring my thoughts and energy with my amazing community.”

At 51, Matt is living proof that age is just a number and in a society plagued by mental illness and disconnection, Matt’s message is a beacon of hope. Through nutritious food, loving relationships, and a steadfast commitment to self-care, he believes we can all find our footing in an increasingly chaotic world.

So, whether you’re embarking on your own fitness journey or simply seeking a dose of inspiration, Matt Lewis’ story is a reminder that true strength lies not just in our muscles, but in our ability to embrace life’s challenges with courage and grace.

“I was lucky enough to grow up with influences that motivated me towards an organic, strong, peaceful, meditative and disciplined type of life. At over 50 I’ve been through the good times and the bad and I’ve learned that it really is the simple things like training, eating, sleeping and looking after relationships that are what we need to feel alright.”
